Today I will teach you how to prepare a Piquillo peppers cake, I discovered this curious recipe in a cooking magazine, although I changed the filling for another one I liked more, the truth is that I do not remember the filling of that recipe, but I wasn´t very convinced of it.
At first glance it may seem very complicated, but I assure you it is not, so if you are looking for something to surprise your guests, dare with this salty cake, you will leave them astonished.
You can make a cake for four people with the quantities I give you, although you can also cut it into thinner slices and serve it as a starter for six people.
And if you have already tried this type of cakes, did you like them? Did they have any filling?
